BENTON CO., Ore. (KOIN/AP) — A woman whose body was found near Alsea on April 18 has been identified as a 27-year-old from Russia, deputies revealed.
Anna Alekseyevna Repkina was found dead with what appeared to be a gunshot wound, Benton County Sheriff’s Office previously said.
William Chase Hargrove, 27, was arrested just 2 days after Repkina’s body was found. Investigators said he was responsible for her murder.
Investigators said Repkina flew into the U.S. through Los Angeles International Airport on March 1. She reportedly had a valid passport from Russia.
Repkina most recently lived in Corvallis.
Benton County Senior Deputy District Attorney Amie Matusko said Repkina was in a “love triangle relationship” with Hargrove and another woman.
The district attorney said Repkino and the other woman were living at separate locations when the other woman told Hargrove to choose between them.
Hargrove then allegedly took Repkina to a remote logging road and shot her.
Her family has been notified of her death.
Anyone with information on her activities while in Oregon should call 541.766.6858.
